I AM NOT CRAZY! I am not crazy! I know he swapped those numbers, I knew it was 1216; One after Magna Carta, as if I could ever make such a mistake, never! Never! I just... I just couldn't prove it! He-He-He covered his tracks, he got that idiot at the copy shop to lie for him. [...] You think this is something, you think this is bad? This, this chicanery? He's done worse. That billboard! Are you telling me that a man just happens to fall like that? No! He orchestrated it! Jimmy! He defecated through a sunroof! And I saved him! And I shouldn't have. I took him into my own firm!

~ Chuck McGill's villainous breakdown after being outsmarted by his brother during a trial, showing how much he truly resents Jimmy.
I don't want to hurt your feelings... but the truth is, you've never mattered all that much to me.
~ Chuck hurting Jimmy with their last conversation.

Charles Lindbergh "Chuck" McGill is the main antagonist of Better Call Saul, the prequel series of Breaking Bad.

He serves as the main antagonist of Season 1, one of the two main antagonists (alongside Hector Salamanca) of Seasons 2 and 3, the posthumous overarching antagonist of Season 4, and a posthumous antagonist in Season 5.

He was the co-founder and named partner of Hamlin, Hamlin and McGill (HMM) and elder brother/archenemy of the titular James Morgan "Jimmy" McGill. Initially attempting to set his brother on a law-abiding path, Chuck was horrified to discover his con-artist brother managed to pass the Bar exam. Chuck exploited his connections through HHM to secretly sabotage Jimmy’s burgeoning legal career, and later hatched a scheme using his impressive legal acumen to have his brother disbarred.

Chuck believes he suffers from a condition known as electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) which causes him extreme pain in the presence of batteries or electrical currents, though this disorder was later proven to be psychosomatic.

He was portrayed by singer and actor Michael McKean, who also played Emperor Zing in American Dad! and Sarousch in The Hunchback of Notre Dame II.

Personality

In stark contrast to his smooth-talking brother, Chuck is self-serious and talks with elaborate diction. This loquacious manner of speaking lends itself well to the courtroom, but is mocked as pretentious by some of Chuck’s rivals. In addition to resenting his brother for his wanton rule-breaking, Chuck also harbors envy towards Jimmy for his ability to charm people and make them laugh. This envy stems from Jimmy being the “favorite child” to both his parents, to the point that their mother's last words were calling out for Jimmy, despite the man’s continued thievery from their father’s store was what lead to their family’s financial ruin and his eventual death.

Chuck is prideful and arrogant, particularly when it comes to matters such as morality and the law, and he is even able to subconsciously suppress his EHS “condition” when necessary to outmaneuver his enemies. He regards the letter of the law as sacred, at one point refusing an offer to achieve his goal of forcing Jimmy out of the legal profession because doing so would require him to commit extortion. Despite no risk of being caught, Chuck takes offense at the offer.
